I'm doing some digging to see what is still under copyright and what is PD.

Paramount is definitely out. Hearst Metrotone's News of Day is also mostly copyrighted (except for 1955, for some reason). Movietone News is also copyrighted.

Warner Pathe News looks to be public domain. I wonder if NARA has any of these.

NARA has some Pathe Newsreels, though nothing comprehensive. Some came by way of AFI, others are reels that came by way of various federal agencies (mainly military) that collected material that had to do with them.
